Newport are just on the fringes of the play off places in the fourth tier and will be looking for a return to winning ways to keep themselves in touch.

Colchester have won two of their last three games, which has helped them pull away from the drop zone a little bit.

Colchester Preview – U’s look for third straight home win

Colchester have given themselves a good fighting chance of staying in League Two with some positive home form.

The U’s have won three of their last five on home turf (D1 L1) after failing to win any of their first four.

While they are sitting on a W3 D2 L3 home record this season, their home form is interesting.

Two of the home successes for the U’s happened against current strong top-six sides, Harrogate and Exeter City.

It was Exeter that they took a 3-1 home win over in midweek.

In the match outright the win for Colchester is at 23/10* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021).

There has been an average of one goal per home game by Colchester this season, who have hit the back of the net in each of their last five home fixtures.

The U’s have, however, failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last six played, home and away combined.

Our betting prediction:
Newport/Newport HT/FT

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021)


Colchester have won three of their last four home fixtures against Newport Country.

They did let last season’s corresponding fixture slip, however, suffering a 2-0 loss against the Welsh club.

The U’s have scored 67% of all their goals this season in the first half of matches but have been leading at the halftime break in just 2 of 9 home games.

They have conceded a halftime goal in just one of their last four at home in the league.

So there has been an improvement there. But they remain the joint third-lowest scoring team in the entire division.


Newport County Preview – Can the visitors take the points?

Newport have been in decent shape this season in League Two and have suffered one loss in their last nine played (W4 D4).

They haven’t taken a win in their last two, suffering a home loss against Swindon before a midweek draw at Crawley.

Strangely the slips that Newport have had away from home have been against teams currently 16th or lower (W1 D1 L3).

Colchester for reference are currently 19th.

It’s currently a four-match undefeated streak of away form by Newport in League Two, winning two of those.

One concern for them will be a lack of away clean sheets. Newport have conceded in each of their last seven matches on the road.

They have tallied up an average of 1.4 goals per away game, which is fair.

Newport have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games.

A Newport County HT option is at 2/1 for football betting* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021).

They have been strong in the first half of matches, and have been leading at the break in three of their last four away games (D1).

Their half time away record is W4 D4 L2 this season and Newport have scored 64% of away goals in the first 45 minutes of matches.

The three points have to be within their sights and they are 6/5 to get them* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021).


Colchester vs Newport County Betting Advice

Newport have done well on the road recently and look as if they are a viable proposition to land the three points.

Heading straight to the match outright where there is a 6/5 quote on them is a reasonable place to start* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021).

But looking to push that on a little bit, it’s Newport’s first-half goals away from home that we are going to lean on.


Key Facts – Colchester vs Newport County Betting Tip

  • Colchester have won their last two home fixtures
  • Colchester lost twice to Newport County last season
  • Newport County have opened the scoring in 7 of 10 away games


The Newport HT/FT option is at 14/5 for this one* (odds recorded 18:09 GMT November 24th 2021).

The Welsh club did beat Colchester twice last season in League Two and can build on that.

They’ve had some wobbles on the road against teams in the bottom half of the table and Colchester have sprung home surprises on stronger teams.

But it’s the away win that we are looking at.
